Double Cheeseburger Casserole

For my office Christmas party last Thursday we all had to bring a covered dish. I decided to prepare a recipe that's passed through the lineage of my family tree for decades... probably since 1940 or so (at least that's what a Google search of Mcdonald's tells me). It's complicated and takes a lot of preparation, but I was able to pull off a perfect double cheeseburger casserole.

For those of you interested in serving this tasty treat in your own home, I have included the recipe:

Step 1: Head over to your local Mcdonald's.

Step 2: Order 10 double cheeseburgers.

Step 3: Ignore the weird look from the cashier.

Step 4: Wonder to yourself why the cashier just asked "is that for here or to go?" because, yeah, I'm really going to sit here and eat 10 double cheeseburgers by myself. I'm not from Huntington, lady.

Step 5: Ignore the dirty looks from the cook in the back.

Step 6: Take the double cheeseburgers home.

Step 7: Get out your nicest 9x13 casserole dish.

Step 8: Do not grease the casserole dish.

Step 9: Remove wrappers from the double cheeseburgers (very important).

Step 10: Make sure the meat, the cheese and the bread on the double cheeseburgers line up evenly (you know, since it's so hard for the person who initially made the sandwich to do).

Step 11: Place each double cheeseburger in the casserole dish strategically so that it looks like you care.

Step 12: Serve.

Step 13: Enjoy.


  1. Great dish, I actually have one, with out the bread due to Auntie M's gluten intolerance!!! Hope you had a great family week-end. Have a merry Christmas
